Mays was their hero, shining example, advisor, close friend, and also fearless schoolmaster. Lerone Bennett Jr., one of Bennie s children and a participant of the Morehouse lesson of 1949, asserted of Mays, Although he taught no lessons at Morehouse, he instructed, in a manner of speaking, all courses. For his spirit penetrated the whole school and the whole country, and he got to heights achieved by couple of instructors. Several remember the eulogy at the funeral service of Martin Luther Master Jr. created as well as provided by Mays, for Dr. Master had actually been among Bennie s kids, also, from the course of 1948. Though long planned, this publication was developed as a festschrift concerning the time of Mays retired life from the presidency of Morehouse, some forty years ago. Samuel DuBois Cook, student and also friend of Mays, requested that particular experts acquainted with the life and job of Mays write on certain fundamental motifs Dr. Mays had actually attended to and also deeply wrestled with. Factors were to consider is extensive conceptual framework and also vision, faith, as well as evaluation of bigotry, social idea, moral concept, and philosophy of education and learning. All the compositions in this publication were written by Mays former pupils, associates, and also good friends, with one essay being written by Mays himself, and now they are ultimately offered as if frozen in time.
